Marlo Mortel is organizing a benefit concert for his mother who is undergoing treatment because of stage 4 cancer. “It’s on October 13 at the Elements Centris along EDSA sa may Quezon Avenue. All proceeds, lahat po ng kikitain dito ay mapupunta po sa pagpapagamot ng mommy ko dahil meron po siyang stage 4 cancer so sana po suportahan niyo,” he said.

The actor remarked that he was happy to receive the support of many Kapamilya stars to make the concert happen.


Nakakataba ng puso dahil ang dami ring nag-offer ng help nila, may work lang sila pero meron po akong limang special guests dito sina Kisses Delavin, Maymay Entrata, Michael Pangilinan, Janella Salvador, at Jed Madela. Lahat po sila agree po talaga na mag-guest dito at meron din po ako ditong surprise guest or guests,” he said.

Marlo conceptualized the event and a production team helped him turn it into reality.

May tumulong sa akin na production team for free na, ‘yun [para] ma-organize ‘to lahat at ako talaga lahat tumutok dito, ako nag-invite sa guests and nakikipag-usap din ako kung saan pwede i-promote ang tickets,” he shared.

The actor remarked that in times of difficulties, music is really something he turns to. 

Malaki talaga ang naitutulong ng music kasi ako passion ko talaga ang music kaya whenever I feel down, kumakanta lang ako, gitara. Gumagaan ‘yung pakiramdam ko kahit papano and one way din ‘yun ng bonding ng family dahil mahilig din sila kumanta so nakaka-happy,” he said.
